IMPORTANT WWII D-DAY FLOWN FLAG of LCT 530, UTAH BEACH - INVASION OF NORMANDY Historically important WWII D-Day Flown Flag of LCT 530 (Landing Craft Tank) - Utah Beach, Invasion of Normandy. This 48 Star Ensign was flown aboard LCT 530 on June 6th, 1944 as it took part in Utah Beach Operations during the invasion of Normandy (D-Day). It was recovered and kept by Gunner’s Mate Second Class Harry William Heckman, who served aboard LCT 530 on D-Day. This one-of-a-kind piece of WWII Memorabilia, the WWII D-Day Invasion flag of LCT 530, will make an excellent complement to any private collection or a wonderful addition to a museum catalog. Very few D-Day flown flags are known to exist in the market, and as such, this is an exceedingly rare opportunity to own an extraordinarily special piece of history, from one of the most significant military events of the 20th century. The Allied Invasion of Normandy on June 6th, 1944 (D-Day), involved nearly 160,000 Allied Troops (half of whom were American). The D-Day Invasion, and the sacrifice of those involved, signaled a turning point in the WWII European theater, and contributed largely to the defeat of Germany. Provenance: The Flag is consigned by the Family of Harry Heckman, the individual who recovered this D-Day Flag from LCT 530. It is accompanied by a complete file of provenance relating to Heckman and his service, to include documentation of his D-Day service aboard LCT 530. The Flag has been in the possession of the family since being brought back by Heckman. Also included is a Notarized Statement of Flag Authenticity, from Consignor Jason Hall (Grandson of Heckman, inherited Flag directly from Heckman). (Please contact us for a copy of complete Provenance and any additional photos) Size: 61.5x33.5x2.75" (Framed) Condition: Framed. Good. Loss, tearing, and discoloration to flag consistent with age and use. Flag sewn onto back board within frame.
